Neglected Model May ’18 Painting Challenge – Community Round-Up

Wudugast’s Unforgotten.

Wudugast from Convert or Die set himself a task this month, to complete an impressive selection of models which he dubbed “The Unforgotten“. Throughout the month’s regular updates, he managed to get every single one of his models completed, as well as a bonus cultist! Kudos, mate!

 

Dave Kay’s Neglected Nazgul, Ratskin, Bounty Hunter and Wizard.

Next, we have Scent of a Gamer‘s Dave Kay, who selected a selection(!) of his models that weren’t started, but had been neglected for years and turned them into a nice little collection of completed work. Dave’s even continuing to work on the neglected models in his collection after the theme month, which is always cool.

 

Bonecruncha’s Death Guard Helbrute… Done!

Bonecruncha, one of the co-bloggers at Slow and Purposeful completed this Death Guard Hellbrute, which from the look of it could also be called Bonecruncha.

 

Tyger, Tyger, burning bright…

The Japanese Type 92 rolls on down the road.

Justneedsvarnish from, err.. Just Needs Varnish showed that he’s also a William Blake fan and a cat lover like myself this month with a completed Tiger first up, followed by a Japanese Type 92 Combat Car (I wonder how well that would go down in Gaslands?)

 

Ann’s Neglected Tankbusta with Power Klaw.

Ann from Ann’s Immaterium has completed an Orkish Tankbusta, with a rather nasty “can opener” attachment.

 

The Castle

The Shipwreck.

The Oil Platform.

Gabbi from The Childhood Pasttimes of Gabbi (new blog title!) completed three pieces of terrain for Dystopian Wars. What’s even more impressive than how good they look to my eye is that two of them were originally from Games Workshop’s Dreadfleet game, meaning they’d usually be covered in skulls covered in skulls covered in skulls. I didn’t have a clue until I read that he’d modified them.

 

The Imperfect Modeller’s “The Search for Jack” vignette.

The Imperfect Modeller has created an atmospheric and evocative diorama involving Jack the Ripper, one of his fresher victims, and a rather (un)lucky Bobby on night patrol.

 

So, so many neglected Inquisitorial servants. Eternally hunting.

Krautscientist of the Eternal Hunt completed another of his Inq28 Inquititorial retinues, tying in neglected models with those completed last month. Each model an individual and a character, and there are so, so many of them!

Steam Wars – Biplane With Rockets

Steinbergs’ Shed Space completed this Steam Wars biplane, which I forgot to add in initially because I forgot and we didn’t have a link. Fixed now, though!

Then there’s my own stuff, briefly highlighted in my last post, and in detail across the last month of this blog.

 

Once again, I have to offer a hefty congratulations to all of the people who managed to get something done. While the kernel for these challenges are really for myself – to help motivate me, it’s a pretty powerful thing to see how so many of us can help to motivate one another each month. And yeah, I know monthly challenges can get tedious for some people – but like I said, I’m keeping them going to keep my own painting mojo going – as well as for anyone/everyone else that feels like/is able to join(ing) in on a given month.

and…

Did you paint a neglected model during May? Did I forget to include you? Did we discuss neglected models in the comments of one of the posts or someone else’s blog comments and now you’re not included here? Just let me know in the comments below.

Not to be a nagging bastard, but that’s why I ask you to link back to me. I don’t need the money or the fame of a trackback, but it makes it a million times easier for me to round up the community posts and make all of the links. 😉

      • Definitely – I’m determined to get all my plague monks done this month so they’ll be my Junit challenge. Depending on how things go on the work/real life front I may try to finish another unit or two as well. We’ll see though, work has just gone from crazy to ludicrous so time will be at a premium.

        • Ah yes. I’d forgotten about my own while I’ve been trying to get a few other things done. I’ll have to fish them out. Horrible figures to paint. Luckily, my work demands have just (about) crested a hill for awhile, so I’ll be able to relax a bit more for awhile soon.

  1. Excellent work, everyone! That Deathguard Helbrute, in particular, stands out to me, as I might be able to erm “borrow” a few last minute idea for my own Nurglite Dread. And the repurposed Dreadfleet objectives have made me realise for the first time how much that castle resembles the castle from the terribly aged CGI appearing in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night 😉

    Azazel, thanks again, both for the shout out and for those challenges! They have been one of my main hobby motors so far this year! 🙂
